Wednesday 22 June
A Club night event with a difference
A relay race for teams of 3 people of different standards, eg a level 1,
a level 3 and a level 4 runner making up a team based on previous
handicap and race times. Latecomers and absentees caused some last minute adjustments
to the teams leading to a later than expected start. It was in fading light
that the last runners reached the finish. The winners were Tony Hughes, Jenny
French and Stu Lumsden, who each took home a bottle of wine.
